I am currently taking amoxicillin to treat strep throat and I am experiencing orange/pink discharge. I am currently on the birth control patch and I’m wondering if I am experiencing break through bleeding due to an interference from the antibiotic with my bc.
Yes, birth control is affected by antibiotics. I would use a back up birth control while taking antibiotics.
